  1. glad you agreed too. is a loss for us all.hope will meet her someday in person then
  2. thank you i s aw that but such a shame all her wonderful comments have been deleted . i enjoyed reading them and agreed with so much.
  3. i also would like to see a real reconstruction of Petipa’s King’s Command (aka Les Eleves de Dupre), where is gnossie! and all her wonderful comments have disappeared ,, why?
  4. where can you get those bootleg dvs please![ if there were officical dvds out would be happy to buy them !]
  5. thank you i loved the naiad anyway even if i can' t fine the other one.
  6. thank you for this.love it!.though the clip i can see says the naiad and the fisherman on the upper left of the clip is it that ballet? ,have seen one varaition on youtube of vaganova school performance ,[no set design]. it's wonderful music . is it by pugni? would love to see the la fille mal garde clip too.wish we could get to see these .
  7. thank you gnosssie, if it werent for you no one would know that it is NOT the real reconstruction .so disappointing ! i was lucky enough to have seen the original . magnificent !
  8. well i say a petipa gala should have petipa and petipa only ! and i say the reconstructions only, ugh that the awakening of flora replaced by balanchine what is wrong with them! i think i know by now -gergiev and fateyev !

    thank you gnossie so much so glad to find someone who agrees with me !and that i agree with. i thought that might be the reason. money. glad that sergei vikharev would have wanted the sets and costumes also reconstructed . i hope someday mr pavel Gershenzon ,so glad to know he is there ,could redo the orignal sets and costumes and that for all future ones money will be found to pay for reconstructed sets and costumes it makes all the difference . there must be some big companies that would fund it or more money from the govermnent like before would be great.as pretty as the costumes are its just not the same to me as the ones before , i know they did the best they could but how i wish they will someday reconstruct the original sets and costumes thank you so much for kind offer of p m. i might bug you more! i love ballet and none more than sergei vikharevs reconstructions a total revelation of beauty and magic and another world and time .i loved so many details. thank you for the 9 day information too .

    Sergei Vikharev RIP

    am so devastated!what a terrible loss.and so young. his ballets of sleeping beauty and la bayadere were by far my favorite i have ever ever seen . the sets and costumes were magnificent , why mess with the original i say! the acting and story put back to the original made all the difference the variety of the orignal steps brought back so wonderful. i hope there will be dvds of all his ballets is a disgrace there never were .all i can say is the kirov have no taste to have stopped performing these magnificent ballets and to not have put out dvds of them . and to not have brought the awakening of flora to the u.s.what a loss was looking forward to all the future magnificent reconstructions by the one and only sergei vikharev in years to come. am devastated beyond words.
  13. this is a comment[ below ] from that video of her . sounds familiar to me too ' " It's Gulnara solo of Le Corsaire!” what wonderful dancer ! maybe could email that school too the kuramashin
